borger, david gergen and chief national correspondent, john king. john, the campaigns say they are ready for late night waiting for ohio returns. what do the latest polls tell us? >> if you look at our new poll today, it tells you the campaigns are right. we've got essentially a dead heat. the president has a 50% to 47% for governor romney lead among likely voters. that's within the margin of error. if you look deep into the poll, they're tied among independents. the president is doing very well in cleveland and columbus, where he has to do well. governor romney's doing pretty well down here in the southwest corner of the state where i am and in the rural areas. where he needs to do well. both candidates are doing well where they need to do well. now they're just trying to turn up the energy and turn up the intensity which is why they're both here in the state today. they will both be back in the state today. if you look deep into our poll, you have a classic dead heat in the classic swing state. >> david, you were saying a couple days ago you thought the president was an odds-on favorit

morning and welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. we begin with the latest on the aftermath of the superstorm hurricane ire hurricane sandy. most buses are up and running again and they are free of charge. but most of lower manhattan still has no power and temperatures are dipping into the 30s and 40s. >> and there are no heartbreaking picture as long the jersey shore barrier islands. houses picked up, some just buried in the sand and governor chris christie who toured the destruction with president obama said some parts of the shore may never look the same again. >> the death toll reached 124 people with 56 in the united states. at least 28 in new york. and close to 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come back on. >> cnn has the entire disaster zone covered this morning. our correspondents spanned out across lower manhattan and all up and down the jersey shore. >> first, the economic capital of our country is slowly getting back to normal this morning even while facing extreme damage. power outage
locations? what about voters who lost everything, including their photo i.d.? joe johns from washington joining me now. if anyone knows these questions, you do. do you think the election will be postponed ? what will happen in states like new jersey where many people are dealing with other things rather than worrying about getting to the polls? >> it's hard to say that an election like this will be postpone postponed. there are so many states in the united states that simply were not affected. and if you were to postpone for one state or two states, you would have what would be called an equal protection challenge and you could go to court and fight it. so, what's much more likely to happen, carol, is that the places that have problems -- we're talking about counties and specific precincts that have determined they have a problem. they'll do something to fix it, whether they'll move the polling place or there are some states that even have laws or rules where you can, you know, incrementally move the date or time, something along those lines. there are a lot of different options they ca
for one another, that's why we always bounce back from these kinds of disasters. >> let's bring in john nichols washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine and author of the book "uprising." the american middle class in this election cycle has been at the focal point of many conversations. this is the economic portion of america that's been asked to do more. this is the portion of america that has had their voices in the workplace attacked. their pensions cut. their wages sliced and yet we see when there is an emergency as what we are seeing with this storm, they step up and they are americans. what does it say about this country in the middle of this hot political debate that performances such as this are delivered by these americans? >> well, it's pretty inspiring, ed, and you're right, in many ways this year's election is a referendum on not just government. that's too vague a term. it's on the human infrastructure of public services in this country, the people who go out and make sure that when you go to sleep at night, and a storm is coming in, that that next morning you'll s
event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas. that's the big focus today. why? it's an issue that resonates with the voters here's in ohio. one out

the sniper shootings that left ten people dead in our area. >> now the ex-wife of convicted sniper john alan mohamed is speaking out about the attacks. mildred mohamed talks about how she is moving on from hardship to find hope. >> october 23rd atf knocked on my door to take me to the police station for questioning and that is when they told me they were going to name john as the sniper. that was also when mildred mohamed would learn her ex-husband was out to murder her and the ten innocent people who were killed were just a cover. >> so that he could come in as a grieving father and get custody of the children. >> reporter: mildred says john alan mohamed was psychologically abusive to her. after she left him he disappeared with their three young children. when she finally got them back a judge issued a restraining order against her ex-husband. mildred mohamed knew that if he saw her again he would kill her. >> he said you have become my enemy and as my enemy i will kill you. he said that right in my face. >> i think people would be surprised to know that other people have attacked you. >> t
tried to come home for the first time and for some they found nothing. and the politics of sandy, john king has a map to show you of pretty incredible, actually two, one shows areas of the power out and the other of those residents who voted in the last election. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar. though all energy development comes with some risk, we're committed to safely and responsibly producing natural gas. it's not a dream. america's natural gas... putting us in control of our energy future, now. or that printing in color had to cost a fortune. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bu
, john heilemann. msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe. msnbc political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think about this storm and what it's done to the media environment over the course of the week, it's blackout coverage. so the president's been in that coverage. and to some extent, much driven by the storm but he's -- he's there, he's the president on screen. governor romney has been nowhere. he's just -- it's not his fault. he's just not part of this conversation. he doesn't have anything to say about it. he doesn't have a role to play. so if you're a challenger, running a presidential campaign, in the last week t
's bring in john feary and david goodfriend. good to see you, gentlemen. good morning. david, let me ask you about mitt romney as appeal to hillary clinton veeters. could he pick off moderate democrats? >> no. in order to be a hillary clinton voter you see the world a lot differently than mitt romney says he does. i think the divisiveness the romney campaign has shown economically and frankly when it comes to women's issues, it's going to drive people back into the obama camp. it's an interesting thing, because he may very well have had a shot at some of the moderate democratic voters in ohio, but i think his campaign has stumbled in that it never shown itself to be an open, big tent for moderates. it's still very conservative, severely conservative as mitt romney might say, and taehat's going to drive hillary clinton voters back into the fold with the democratic party. i'm privacy in internal p polls in ohio. i can't speak about the specifics, and i'll smiling. the margin is better. ohio is much more in play, especially when the consider how early voting is outperforming in the heavily
with. and, the election coming up next week. john, jenna. jenna: a lot to keep an eye on, janice. thank you. jon: there is this. brand new troubles for a storm-ravaged storm town in new jersey. new fires erupt in the same area where more than a dozen homes burned down when sandy pounded this affluent town. natural gas lines apparently fueling the flames. fire crews are having a tough time reaching the scene because the roads are nearly impasseable. jenna: we're getting brand new details as well on the massive fire that tore through breezy point, queens. you saw some of the footage already. it just boggles the mind. ravaging the blocks and blocks of homes on the barrier island this. is what is evident are. the six alarm fire, one. worst in new york city's history. burned more than 100 homes to the ground and damaged dozens of others. fire crews working nine plus hours to contain fast-moving flames. the tiny coastal neighborhood told to evacuate before sandy on fear of flooding. one report, not a single building, not a single building in the area was left unscathed, hit by storm surge the
than 70 stories up. it is right down the street from this building. john miller spoke with two city engineers who took on the dangerous task of making sure the crane doesn't fall to the street below. >> reporter: during the storm that snapped the boom off the crane with winds gusting through and swinging the hanging boom back and forth two new york city building department engineers had to get to the top of the building and answer the question would the boom hold or come crashing down? for most of the long climb the only way up was the stairs. >> i've never heard anything as loud as wind howling in my life as we got to the 48th floor and you have to apply so much pressure to open the door. i was with him. we got into the hallway and you could almost get sucked right out. >> reporter: michael and timothy had to check each of the structural braces that held the tower with the crane on top the side of the building. >> we were concerned about the upper most part. if that tie had failed that means the mast could fall. 1,000-foot mast. >> reporter: if the climb up was perilous it was noth
not accurate. host: john prible, because of these hurricanes that we looked at earlier in 2004 and sandy, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive modernization project where they are going across the country using scientific and engineering models to remap. we had a caller earlier who said that the map was old and out of date. that will not be the case. so there will be changes to flood zones over the coming years if you cannot already had a change. you may have one coming in the next two years. but it will not be the result of a particular storm or particular flooding event. these policies are different than private insurance policies in that regard. for example, if you have an auto insurance policy and get into an accident and make a claim, your insurance premiums going forward may increase because of your history. the national flood insurance program does not quite work that way. in that individual storms or flooding events don't have a direct bearing on
